Bedford Peak

Bedford Peak (3800 feet) is a little mound on the Santa Ana crest, nearly 2000 feet below Santiago Peak.  The hike from the gate on Silverado Canyon Road was easy and surprisingly enjoyable (6.6 miles, 2200 vertical feet).  I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. 

 Looking north toward Sierra Peak with Mt. Baldy in the distance. 

 The San Gabriel Mountains.  Mt. Baldy is the highest peak on the left.

Another view north to the San Gabriels. 

Patrick Moran taking a break from digging holes on the summit. 

 Looking toward the ocean. Ok, maybe not "the" ocean, but "an" ocean at least.

Looking down at Silverado Canyon and the zigzagging trail.  This view reminded me of the Himalayan foothills in Nepal. 

Patrick realizing that there would be no bushwhacking on this outing either.  Enjoy it while it lasts . . .
